What is there to do?

The Rock Centre is the ONLY climbing gym in the entire city of Darwin - so if you want indoor rock climbing, then you know where to head!

The Rock is also an indoor gym with a difference - in fact, it's where you can climb INSIDE an old WWII oil tank, and clamber up the side and try and reach the top!

Whether you are a beginner looking for a new skill, or advanced and looking for a challenge, The Rock will be able to help you! You see, the routes up the wall are colour coded, which means they are labelled in levels of difficulty.

So if you want the easy route, there's one colour - if you want the toughest (and they can be pretty tough!), then you just keep to that colour too!

Alongside the wall is a multi-story play maze to keep the young at heart entertained and amused suitable for kids of bouldering age.

The Rock Centre is located in a lush tropical setting adjacent to a wonderful boardwalk and nature area, in a prime part of Darwin beside the Aquascene fish feeding venue. 

If you REALLY want to push yourself, The Rock can help arrange outdoor climbing, as well as other adventures like orienteering, abseiling, and even overnight camps!

So what are you waiting for? There are walls that need to be climbed, and personal bests that need to beaten - we know you can do it - so let's CLIMB!

How much does it cost?

Adults: $25

Children: Play Gym : $10 ($7 under 5yrs)

Any top tips?

If you're unsure your child can handle the wall maze, call them for advice and they'll tell you how to tell from their existing skills whether they're ready or not.
